Remembered Today:

56th Div Congratulatory Cards


Recommended Posts

I've seen references ina couple of battalion war diaries to "Congratulatory Cards" given out by 56th (London) Division, in 1917 and 1918. Presumably this was a form of "mention". Has anyone seen one? What did they say/look like?

Many divisions had these - to reward soldiers who otherwise wouldn't get anything.

Several 56th Div men I knew had been given them; they were very similar to a MID certificate, and signed by Major General Hull.

They had the soldiers name and military details written on the card; but not the date and place of the "act" if I recall correctly.
